#3. Ralph's Letters


letters sewn on organza

I work intuitively, and recently influenced by a workshop with Ellen Kochansky, I knew I wanted to use silk organza. I chose to work with the envelopes first. [I photocopied all the letters and envelopes, so I'd have copies. I'm going to use the originals in my art, because they have real emotional power.] I tore rectangles of organza, and using my sewing machine, zig-zag stitched each envelope to a piece of organza. Why? I don't know yet.
